Interestingly, I note you indicate on the other thread that the 930/50 engine was through Oct 75...from data I have seen (Porsche Red Book) indicates the 930/50 engine had numbers 6750001-6750297 for the '75 production year, and the same engine, 930/50 was fitted for the 1976 year with numbers 6760001-6760157 and 6760301-6760808.

Of course, I am looking at this data long enough to know five different sources will give you five different answers when it comes to Porsche historical details....but interesting to see the differences here....
Most references show the engine numbers beginning at “01” when they actually started at “21”. Ryan’s website has the correct engine # information listed:

930 Turbo Carrera 3.0-liter: Registry

Porsche homologated the 934 (Group 4) with 400, 1975 and 1976 production turbos with 930/50 engines which is why the same engine crossed two model years.
